  • Sforza Castle and Michelangelo's Pietà Rondanini Tour

    1. Sforza Castle and Michelangelo's Pietà Rondanini Tour

    Florence is not the only Renaissance city in Italy. You can still find some traces of that period in Milan as well. Unveil the last masterpiece from Michelangelo right in Sforza Castle, located in the heart of Milan. A few steps away from Duomo, the Cathedral, one of the most beautiful pieces of art is resting, the Pietà Rondanini by Michelangelo. He did this amazing sculpture when he was 89 years old, only a few days before his death. But it is not all about Michelangelo. Have you ever heard about his friend Leonardo Da Vinci? During the 1.5-hour guided experience with your monolingual guide, you will hear many stories about him as well. Finally, every secret of the Castle is going to take life, visit the courtyard and the interior of the Castle and learn about Milan’ powerful families.

    We had an extremely knowledgeable guide and we were the only ones scheduled for the tour so it was like a private tour. We enjoyed it so very much. Thank you

    The tour was outstanding and the guide Cristina was full of knowledge anything about Milan. Cristina called me on my mobile well in advance before we met Cristina at Milan Duomo as per agreed time and this is somewhat we feel like in home at Milan. She was waiting having placard with my name on it and it was wonderful welcome from her. We started tour with outside visit of Duomo followed by inside of duomo with detail explanation from Cristina at every point.Then we moved thru Galleria Vittorio Emanuele to La Scala museum (outside only) and finally to Castello Sforzesco. The weather was excellent as spoken by Cristina herself and the fine weather made the walking tour more comfortable. We had the experience of Gelato during the walking in one of the shop suggested by Cristina and it was amazing. The tour will be always in our heart and mind and this was possible only because of Cristina.
